Scheich Sets Career Assist Mark in Loss to #2 Limestone

SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba closed out its men's lacrosse season with an 18-5 loss to second-ranked Limestone on Saturday night at Shuford Stadium.  The visiting Saints improve to 16-1, while the Catawba Indians finish up at 7-8.

Steven Ridolfo (Charlotte, NC/Providence HS/Gettysburg), one of a dozen Catawba seniors, led the Indians with two goals and an assist.  Senior John Scheich (Waxhaw, NC/Weddington HS) assisted on Catawba's first two goals of the game to set a new career record with 86.  Junior Adam Hebert (Charlotte, NC/Charlotte Catholic HS) had a goal and an assist.

Limestone wasted little time in grabbing the lead as Kevin Reisman won the opening face-off and Todd Nakasuji scored within nine seconds.  The Saints were up 3-0 before Scheich fed Ridolfo and Hebert for goals to pull Catawba within 3-2 at the 6:15 mark of the opening quarter.  Limestone went on a six-goal run after that until Ridolfo scored again with 4:28 left before the half.

Senior Tyler Ulrich (Ephrata, PA/Ephrata HS) scored the third straight goal for Catawba to start the second half to close the gap to 8-5 at the 12:31 mark of the quarter.  The Saints scored three goals over the next three and half minutes to regain control then pulled away in the final quarter.

Nakasuji tallied four goals for Limestone, while Kyle Rhatigan scored three goals and added three helpers.  Joshua Williams and Mike Messenger also picked up three goals for the Saints.

Limestone held a decided 52-20 edge in shots with goalie Patrick Sheridan making just three saves.  Reisman went 19-of-25 in face-offs for the Saints.

Senior goalie Pete Wesselman (Charlotte, NC/Providence HS/Stevenson) played the first quarter for the Indians and stopped nine shots.  Freshman Ryan Applegate (Ponte Vedra Beach, FL/Ponte Vedra HS) recorded a dozen saves over the final three quarters.
